Researchers develop method to transmit brain images to computer screen

OK, come on, this is cool.

I’m intrigued by the suggestion that the method could potentially be extended to provide images of dreams. Suppose you tell somebody to imagine a fictional scene or object, e.g. a pink elephant with wings. Would the technology show what the subject is only imagining in his/her head?

Here’s a post on MetaFilter with more links, including example images. I think they’re surprisingly clear.
